Plastic Bottle Craft

I love to use plastic bottles for crafts. In particular the white milk bottles we get here more so than cartons. They are pretty easy to cut with scissors and are very Sharpie friendly. And who is a friend of Sharpies is also my friend. 😉

I am actually presently hording these bottles. Pretty easy as our son is almost living of them it seems. No, not the bottles but the content of it. I have so many ideas and some I can already share with you here.

What you’ll need:

  • appr. 10 milkbottles
  • scissors & cutting knife
  • SHARPIES or other permanent markers for that matter
  • string and bands to hang up the end product
  • your stapler to attach pattles to leavy ring at top
  • puncher for holes to put bands through that hold mobilé


  • First, I cut out all the shapes
  • Then colour in
  • Putting Mobilé together by starting off at top: first staple together the ring that will hold the pattles
  • then staple the pattles on to the ring
  • hang in leavy branches
  • put butterflies on string and hang into Mobilè
